Moto GP shaping up for 2016 w/ testing *RESULTS*

MotoGP testing is done @ Philip Island and things are shaping up. What's exciting is the talk of a new Alien rider.
Thursday Viñales on the upgraded GSX-RR (Seemless gearbox, more powerful engine, revised chassis) was the fastest of the day, and the entire testing event with a 1:29.131 that no one could match all week long. Viñales also had an overall pace right up top with only Rossi having more laps under 1:30 them Maverick. Additionally there is another new transmission that was being tested by Suzuki test rider Takuya Tsuda that the factory riders will get at Qatar for the next test.

Re: Moto GP shaping up for 2016 w/ testing *RESULTS*

Less than 2 seconds separate all 19 riders (let's not count the last one, he's probably on pre-pro stuff). Wow.

On one hand I'm happy the open class backmarkers won't be on track this year. But on the other hand sometimes the front of the race is a runaway and if the broadcasters will cover it, it's like a little race-within-a-race. Not to mention some of them were properly quick but stuck with older machinery.

Yeah It's crazy how fast they all are and the top guys are only tenth's of a second from one another.

From 2016MotoGP TV Channels Broadcasting Live Worldwide

"In United States Fox Sports has the rights and they will be covering every grand prix live plus Moto2 and Moto3 coverage on delayed basis. While the Qualifying and Practice rounds will be available live through their website and mobile apps."

I usually find them online and watch when I have time - rarely on race day.
